O 100 species of plants exhibit systemic wound signaling that induces the production of defensive chemicals in leaves and stems (1). The signaling is caused by herbivore attacks and also occurs in response to some pathogens (2–5). The most intensively studied systemic signaling response is that found in species of the Solanaceae family, where a systemic wound signal that is graft transmissible regulates the expression of defensive proteinase inhibitors (PIs) and polyphenol oxidase genes (6… CONTINUE READING
